Lonely Planet review
Housed in an early-20th-century brick structure that served as a cannery, and more famously the Simplon raincoat factory, this is a creatively designed hostel that is affably operated by staff being trained to re-enter the labor force. It also features a fine cafe, the 73-2, with several toothsome, reasonably priced vegetarian options.
Our independent authors have visited Simplon Jongerenhotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Groningen.
